I have heard of (but never witnessed) salmon being caught off the east cape, but never near Mulege! Sounds like they were deep enough to stay in relatively cooler water.

There was a Beluga whale in San Diego last week for the first time in recorded history. Crazy times indeed.

Mulegé Municipality... Not the town. However, even 100 miles south (near Puerto Escondido) where this salmon was caught is still intriguing.

Keta Salmon? Like currently on sale at my local Stater Brothers? I've got a big fillet in brine right now, putting it in the smoker tomorrow. Looks just like the picture. I believe they are still wild caught, so who can say where that fish came from. Hmm.

Perhaps fake news? Another radical-left hoax? Mexican pranksters?

“Keta” is a name used up by seafood marketers. The “correct” name is dog or chum salmon.
Pretty tasty. The row is good.

In Alaska, fish farming is not permitted, however, there are hatcheries near tidewater that put millions more juvenile salmon in the ocean than nature could support in the streams!

A chum salmon is a mild flavored fish, which is ok in the wild, but they deteriorate rapidly when they go into the spawning stage. The bright red roe is highly prized in Asia, but by the time the roe is prime quality, the flesh usually goes to pet food or other byproducts.

The term "dog salmon" could refer to the nasty teeth they develop during spawning, but they are also widely used for feeding sled dogs along the Yukon river. Coho, Chinook and Sockeye are people food!

Forgive my ignorance; do they return to the originating hatchery during spawn?


Yes! There are a couple of hatcheries that I know of that are small streams, on islands in Price William sound. There really is no river to migrate upstream, so they are harvested in the bay while they are trying to figure out where to go!

Ive eaten a lot of dog salmon. quite eatable . although i prefer king ,red ,and silver. still better than pink.
its called dog due to natives using it to feed sled dogs.

Does that mean the flesh is less depleted? I've eaten salmon caught way upstream during spawning season, and the meat seemed... kinda worn out.


The dead end bay fish will be in better shape than the ones way up river, but once they go into the spawn cycle, they stop eatiing and all their energy goes into producing roe, or sperm sacks.

Some species travel better than others, and the length of the swim counts. A salmon with a long journey will have to be in pretty good shape at the mouth of the river, and hopefully make it to a successful spawning.

A salmon with a short commute will be safer in the ocean than spending weeks in the spawning grounds, so they won't even enter the river until it is time to drop eggs.
